A beautifully presented, three bedroom family home in a central East Dulwich location.
If you are looking for a contemporary home finished to a high standard in the heart of East Dulwich you need look no further. This three bedroom house is on Crawthew Grove, a road of Victorian properties located a hundred metres from the Goose Green end of Lordship Lane. The property is beautifully finished throughout and provides scope to increase further the existing footprint by a loft extension (STPP).
Crawthew Grove runs between Crystal Palace Road and Lordship Lane. So, on your doorstep, you have the pick of the many bars and restaurants on this very foodie oriented stretch of south east London high street. You are also excellently placed to pick up some delicious fresh produce from the weekly North Cross Road market or from the local independent butchers, fishmongers or greengrocers for which this area is becoming increasingly known.
The property is within a short walk of the Goose Green, St John’s & St Clement’s and Harris Academy state primary schools and also within easy reach of James Allen’s Prep school, Alleyn’s School and the other independent schools for which Dulwich is renowned. So, whatever your education needs, this house fits the bill.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is approx. a seven minute walk from the property and both Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye railway stations are a short bus ride away. At these stations you will find direct trains to Victoria and King’s Cross stations and access to the London Overground services providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf. Frequent bus services are also available on Lordship Lane providing direct routes to destinations including Brixton, the West End and the City.
You approach the property through the paved front garden and enter into the hallway with its solid wooden flooring that continues through into the double reception room. Immediately to your right in the hallway is the entrance into the reception room. This is a very spacious and bright space with high ceilings. The front reception has a period cast-iron fire with wooden surround and a square bay with casement windows looking out onto Crawthew Grove. The rear reception has an open hearth and cleverly borrows light via an opening in the rear wall, which looks down onto the kitchen below.
Returning to the hallway a flight of stairs leads down towards the kitchen. On your left, just before entering the kitchen, is a doorway down into the cellar space which provides lots of useful and dry storage.
The kitchen is very smartly fitted with a range of white high-gloss units with a stone worksurface. There are a full range of integrated appliances including Neff induction hob, oven and microwave as well as fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. From the kitchen bifold doors lead out onto the garden.
Returning to the main hallway the stairs, with open balustrade, lead to the upper floor. On the first half landing you will find the beautiful bathroom. This lovely room is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising freestanding bath, low-level WC and hand basin with built-in vanity unit. There is also a separate walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall showerhead. The room also benefits from some recessed mirrored storage and a heated towel rail.
From the half landing a further flight of stairs leads up to the first floor proper where you will find the three bedrooms. On this landing there is access to the loft space. The existing owners use this space for storage but it provides scope, subject to planning and permissions, to further extend this lovely home with a loft extension.
The first of the bedrooms, on your left, is a comfortable double room with a casement window looking down onto the garden. At the front of the property at this level is the main bedroom. This is a very spacious double room with casement windows looking down onto Crawthew Grove. The third bedroom is at the rear of the house. This room, which is used by the existing owners as a child’s bedroom, is certainly large enough to accommodate a double bed if required and would also make the perfect home office.
Externally the property benefits from a paved front garden and a secluded south facing rear garden. The rear garden has a decked area, immediately outside of the kitchen’s bifold doors, which leads, via two steps, up onto an area which is laid to astroturf and which, in turn, leads to a rear raised seating area. The garden is nicely secluded and gets good amounts of sun throughout the day. Leading directly from the kitchen, it provides a perfect outdoor entertaining space during the warmer months.
It would be hard to find a home as nicely finished or better located than this one; let alone one that offers the scope for further extending the accommodation. It is the perfect property for a couple making the move up from a flat or for a family. Your early viewing of this property is, therefore, strongly recommended.
